2018 Total Average Sales, TV/ONA

Note: “0” does not mean exactly 0, it means that no volumes ranked in any format. 0 is used to improve results when sorting.
Note: If BD + DVD percentages do not add up to 100%, it’s because the show had an entry on the “Per-series” Oricon rankings in the mid-year or full-year lists. Those discs can only be counted towards the series as a whole, not a specific volume or format.

  1. soul says:

    Why the number of total sales is different from the number of DVD sales + BD sales,for example yurucamp and yorimoi?

    • something something says:

      In the mid-year and end-of-year rankings, there’s a chart that tracks the series that have sold the most discs. For example, check the last chart in this post. The thing about this data is that it can’t be tied to specific volumes, it’s just the total across all volumes in a particular time period. So for example:

      • Show X is 5 volumes
      • Those 5 volumes have combined sales of 50,000 (10,000 DVD + 40,000 BD) based on the (incomplete or otherwise limited) weekly reports and other sources we have available, so a 10,000 average.
      • The per-series ranking comes along and says “Show x sold 55,000 units” across all 5 volumes, so a 11,000 average.
      • We therefore know that there’s 5,000 extra discs sold that we need to account for in the average, but we have no idea how many of those come from each volume, or what the breakdown is between DVD and BD.

      So this means my charts which list average split by DVD and BD won’t always sum up to the actual average.

  2. Arisa says:

    Wait, does that 0 implying that Dorei-ku didn’t even sell a single unit of its BD? Well, who cares. It’s a legit terrible anime.

    • something something says:

      At the top of the page it notes: “Note: “0” does not mean exactly 0, it means that no volumes ranked in any format. 0 is used to improve results when sorting.”

  3. Chad says:

    Only four anime sold more than 10,000 copies per volume, and none sold more than 22,000 per volume.

    • something something says:

      Zombieland Saga will be the fifth, and SAO Alicization technically has a shot (at least for v1), but I do think that’ll be it. Gridman ended up falling short going by v1wk1 numbers though some kind of late entry based on mid-year rankings next year isn’t completely impossible.

      • Chad O'Dell says:

        Still only 5 anime sold more than 10,000 discs per volume, compared to 9 anime in 2017.
        And only 19 anime sold more than 5,000 discs per volume, compared to 24 anime in 2017.
